Silent Retreats Sydney


Reducing stress, and anxiety is easy here at Openground thanks to our silent retreats in Sydney. Simply being away from our day-to-day responsibilities and frustrations for a while will bring down our stress level. At the same time, our silent retreats in Sydney also gives us the opportunity to dive deeply into mindfulness, where we may gain perspective and insight that will stick with us when we return to our daily life. Our ability to be present and focused will help us resolve problems more effectively, reducing our stress and anxiety.

Our silent retreats in Sydney take the energy you use for external communication and channel it inward. This type of structured silence is growing in popularity, no doubt thanks to the communication-burnout many people feel in our 24/7 high-speed world. Our specialised silent retreats have been attracting meditators for thousands of years, and with recent research confirming the benefits of mindfulness and meditation; benefits such as reduced stress levels, lower blood pressure and improved sleep. Our silent retreats in Sydney are helpful for improving their concentration and focus. A silent retreat can also provide an entirely new perspective on major life changes at all ages. True silence removes the pressure of outside influences, allowing you to examine what really brings joy and meaning to your life. Focused periods of meditation can help you uncover your innately joyful nature and teach you to sustain it, even in the face of change and hardship.

Let your mind benefit from a silent meditation retreat in Sydney here at Openground as the absolute silence and tranquil landscape forces you to listen to yourself. Avoid the distractions of external interruptions to your mental processes and as time progresses you will begin to extract and prioritise specific needs over those less important, allowing you to gain mental momentum and increase your productivity. Discover the Openground difference for yourself today.

Why learn with Openground?

Timothea Goddard - Practice mindfulness with an experienced teacher

Personal attention and skilled teaching

Practicing mindfulness with an experienced teacher simply can’t be compared with using a meditation app. We take a genuine, personal approach, and our highly trained, experienced, and dedicated teachers go the extra mile to help you engage with your practice in ways that can bring real transformation.

brain waves - evidence based mindfulness training

Evidence-based transformation

MBSR is an authentic, evidence-based program of mindfulness training, grounded in 39 years of research and drawing on the wisdom of Buddhist psychology. Unlike many shorter mindfulness courses, which have no evidence of benefit, MBSR is globally recognised as the gold standard for mental and physical health in the field.  


Real value

Our immersive, eight-week courses include 28 hours of personal mindfulness training. Many short courses only give you a taste of mindfulness, and are actually more expensive than MBSR on an hourly rate basis. Our courses offer significant value, and we can also arrange serious discounts if you need a helping hand.
